OBN III’s Fire-Off End-of-Days Anthem ‘Worries’
Texas garage-punks prepping third LP for May 27 release
Austin’s OBN III’s will unleash their third full-length of blistering garage-punk — the appropriately titled Third Time to Harm — on May 27 via Tic Tac Totally Records. The five-some, led by frontman Orville Bateman Neeley III, let one track from the upcoming LP slip a few weeks ago (“No Time for Blues” debuted on Noisey), and now they’ve deployed another salvo. On the just-unveiled “Worries,” Neeley assumes the role of apocalyptic soothsayer, half-crooning and half-shouting about climate change, toxic rain, and people going “bat-shit crazy” as fiery solos flank his Danzigian swagger. Hear it below.
